The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this AFTER you've recovered the photos.
 
Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for.

You will need to use a USB flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're inexpensive these days with cost not an issue (around $2 for an SDHC portable). Just make sure that the reader that you purchase states that it's capable of reading SDHC cards.

"cannon powershot sd870 wont turn on when memory


Please check the memory card with your PC and check if there are any corrupt files within. If so remvoe and format the card , Also so a virus scan and confirm that the Sd card is clean.
Now insert and check. If however the card is found in good condition in the first place then there are errors in the interface to the processor in the camera which might need a technical help from the Canon-service center.

Canon SD870 IS lens does not open fully, motor runs.


The best advice is to have it fixed properly. Once these are serviced correctly, they tend to perform like they should. The place that can fix that one is www.camerasandparts.com They do the service for the camera with the repair which is the key to it working the way it should. It's only $79 with them for that service package and it covers parts labor and shipping back. Their the best deal if you need to have a Canon serviced. Their work is as good as it gets for these cameras.

My canon sd870 is reads card lock, how do you unlock it?


Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

If you are certain the card is empty, you should format / erase the card in the camera or external card reader and try again.

Good luck!

Have you tried formatting the card in your camera? Normally for Canons to access this function, first press menu, then select the tools menu, scroll down to the item that states your card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a "low-level" format.

Camera display shows "memory card error".


I would give this software a try:
http://www.download.com/VirtualLab-Data-Recovery/3000-2248_4-10610841.html?cdlPid=10801131
and be more vigilant about backing up your pictures. Flash memory can corrupt at any time. Good Luck.
